Re: Borough High Street

This is my Great Aunt Rose Basham outside Effords Bakery 269 Borough High Street. The photo would have been taken in about 1920. The bakery also had a branch in Great Dover Street.

Re: The Grange

This photo was taken outside The Red Cow in the 1950s. My Nan Elsie Voss is on the left. I think the two in the car are actors and may have been filming locally. Any ideas who everyone is?

Re: Pages Walk

My great Aunt Rose Stapleton was killed with her two young sons Edward and Frederick when a bomb hit their house on the corner of Pages Walk and Grange Road on 15th November 1940. This building must be named after her.
